THE LANCET: “Stigmatizing the unvaccinated is not justified” – Covid Emergency

This is stated by The Lancet, one of the most prestigious scientific journals in the world, not the so-called “novax denier, flat-earther and conspiracy theorist”, used by the media today with the same squalor with which the term “anti-Semitism” is used in international politics to destroy everything. contrasting thought the only and dominant one.

All the social hatred built to justify the total failure of the vaccination campaign and the obligation of the Green pass is swept away by the Lancet.

“COVID-19: stigmatizing the unvaccinated is not justified”.

In the United States and Germany, high-level officials have used the term unvaccinated pandemic, suggesting that people who have been vaccinated are not relevant to the epidemiology of COVID-19. Officials’ use of this phrase may have encouraged a scientist to argue that “the unvaccinated threaten those vaccinated for COVID-19.”

But this view is too simple.

There is growing evidence that vaccinated individuals continue to play an important role in transmission.

In Massachusetts, United States, a total of 469 new COVID-19 cases were detected during various events in July 2021, and 346 (74%) of these cases were in people who were fully or partially vaccinated, 274 (79%) of which they were symptomatic. Cycle breakpoints were equally low between people who were fully vaccinated (median 22 8) and people who were not vaccinated, not fully vaccinated, or whose vaccination status was unknown (median 21 5), indicating a high viral load even among people who were fully vaccinated.

In the United States, a total of 10 262 cases of COVID-19 were reported in people vaccinated by 30 April 2021, of which 2725 (26.6%) were asymptomatic, 995 (9.7%) were hospitalized. and 160 (1.6%) died.

In Germany, 55.4% of symptomatic cases of COVID-19 in patients 60 years of age and older were in fully vaccinated individuals, and this proportion is increasing every week.

In Münster, Germany, new cases of COVID-19 occurred in at least 85 (22%) of the 380 people who were fully vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 and who attended a nightclub.

Vaccinated people have a lower risk of serious illness, but they are still a significant part of the pandemic. It is therefore wrong and dangerous to speak of an unvaccinated pandemic.

Historically, both the United States and Germany have generated negative experiences by stigmatizing parts of the population for skin color or religion. I urge senior officials and scientists to end the inappropriate stigmatization of unvaccinated people, which includes our patients, colleagues and other fellow citizens, and to make additional efforts to bring society together. “
